Disney wrapped up its presentation at CinemaCon, the annual exhibition trade show in Las Vegas, by giving a crowd of theater owners an exclusive look at the first 17 minutes of Toy Story 4.
Variety reports the new footage shows Woody and friends adjusting to life after Andy. If you remember correctly, he passed his toys onto Bonnie at the end of Toy Story 3.
Toy Story 4 begins with a distraught Bonnie, who doesn’t want to leave her toys behind, preparing for her kindergarten orientation. Her toys are her close confidantes at home, but at school, Bonnie has trouble making new friends.
In Bonnie’s backpack, it’s Woody to the rescue. Against the better wishes of Bonnie’s parents, the lovable sheriff snuck into school to ensure his owner adjusts to classroom life. When nobody is looking, Woody hops into the trashcan and tosses some unused supplies onto Bonnie’s work station. Bonnie doesn’t know where the materials came from, but she uses them — a plastic spork, a bright red pipe cleaner, and some googly eyes — to create a friend of her own: Forky.
When Woody (Tom Hanks) and Forky (Tony Hale) arrive back at Bonnie’s house, the cowboy introduces Bonnie’s creation to the gang, including Buzz Lightyear (Tim Allen), Bo Peep (Annie Potts), Jessie (Joan Cusack), and Slinky Dog (Blake Clark). It sends Forky into an existential crisis. He’s not a toy, in his mind, he’s trash — literally.
Even though he’s composed of loose items Woody found in the garbage, the others help him understand how to be a toy. The clip ends as Bonnie and her family prepare to go on a road trip with Forky along for the ride.
Toy Story 4 hits theaters June 21, 2019.
